TOLEDO, Ohio — The Toledo Zoo’s renovated aquarium features its largest exhibit ever and expands the aquarium’s focus to include saltwater as well as fresh water species.
Reopened in March after three years, the aquarium has a total of 210,000 gallons of exhibits, including the 93,000-gallon Tropical Pacific-Rainbow Reef tank, which more than doubles the largest exhibit in the old aquarium.
The aquarium is now home to three times as many marine species, including sea nettles for the first time. Also new is a touch tank with small sharks and rays and a separate invertebrate touch tank.
The Toledo Zoo also made significant repairs and upgrades to the aquarium’s historic WPA exterior, which is more than 75 years old.
